Notes From The April Rock Hill School Board Business Meeting

The Rock Hill School Board had their regularly scheduled business meeting on Monday, April 25, 2011. The following action was taken:

  • Approved the Consent Agenda 7-0 (minutes, personnel recommendations, two field study requests, facilities use request for Impact Church and Jim Vining's April board compensation to The Dolly Parton Imagination Library)
  • Approved Policies EEA and EEAC for second reading (they are now policy). Vote was 7-0
  • Approved Policy JLA for first reading. Vote was 7-0
The board took no action on the superintendents plan to balance the budget but suggested the superintendent submit another plan with the option of using some of the fund balance.

The board recognized; "Distinguished Climbers" for April; Northwestern High School and South Pointe High School for achieving Palmetto Silver Awards and; James Blake for being named the 4A High School Principal of the year by the Athletic Association.

The board heard a legislative update from Walter Brown who urged everyone to thank the state senators who voted against the latest voucher bill.

The board heard Stephen Cox, A Rock Hill Parent representing the Early Learning Partnership of York County, talk about their partnership with ParentSmart and about the wonderful programs ParentSmart provides for parents in the community.

The board was given the list of Title I schools for next year and heard presentations from three students (elementary, middle, and high school).

I will post comments on the budget discussion later. You should watch the replay on the Comporium Cable TV education channel on Tuesday or Thursday nights, beginning at 6 pm.
